Upgrade to Office 2016 using Office 365

This procedure shows how to install Office 2016 by downloading the installation files from Office 365. This is an automated process that will install a seperate version of Office 2016 on top of the currently installed versions of office. That is to say, following this process you will have two versions of Office installed on your PC. You may get errors with the clash of versions of Office on your device.

As a result we recommend that the current version of Office on your PC/laptop is uninstalled and the device is restarted prior to running the Office 2016 installation

NB: While this process will not interfer with any existing files and should not cause any issues with the device, it is advisable to have a recent backup of all local files to an external device or ensure that you have all files synched to OneDrive prior to installing Office 2016.
